Our partners

The UK's 15 National Parks work with national partners through National Parks Partnerships. Our partners provide vital support to the National Parks family and help us to increase the understanding, enjoyment and valuing of our special landscapes.

We are a key agency in a network of specialist partners that help realise the Broads Plan - the long term management strategy for the Broads. In addition to local authorities, our partners include:

The Broads Biodiversity Group provides a focal point for the delivery of nature conservation and the Water Quality Partnership focuses on non-agricultural water pollution. They are overseen by the Conservation Partnership. We are also part of the Broadland Catchment Partnership which works together for healthier wetlands in the wider area of rivers around the Broads.
